IT’S A MAN’S WORLD Event Includes Panel Hosted by Dani Kwateng-Clark, Spotlighting Gender Inequality in Film and Media

Reebok has partnered with ARRAY, the media company and arts collective founded by filmmaker Ava DuVernay, to host a celebration dedicated to the influential role of creative women in film during Hollywood’s biggest weekend. The event, to be held on Saturday, February 8, will include a quartet of free screenings of some of this year’s most impactful films directed by women. The day-long gathering will culminate with a panel discussion hosted by Dani Kwateng-Clark on parity, persistence and passion.

The event, entitled “IT’S A MAN’S WORLD”: A Celebration of Women in Film, was created in response to on-going award season debate, as celebrities and industry insiders continue to raise concern with the continued lack of female representation and recognition in Hollywood. The panel will take place on Saturday, February 8 at ARRAY’s Creative Campus in Los Angeles.

Reebok aspires to be an influential platform for women who manifest true change in the world, dating back to the creation of the first fitness sneakers for active women in the ‘80s with the Freestyle High. Today, as cultural and gender stereotypes remain at the forefront of societal discourse, Reebok continues to drive awareness around gender equality through the “IT’S A MAN’S WORLD” campaign and sneaker collaborations by celebrating female trailblazers.
